Dapper chaps sporting elegant moustaches will take centre-stage at Sandown Park Racecourse today.
The Gentlemen’s Day event will be held in association with Movember UK and will place well-heeled men in the spotlight to raise cash for charity.
The track is offering £5 off grandstand admission prices to any gents with a freshly-grown moustache and will be running a male grooming stable offering wet shaves and moustache trimming.
‘The Mo Bro Derby’ will take place during the afternoon’s racing with a cluster of eager, moustached men running a half furlong romp along the finishing stretch.
Along with an eclectic selection of food stalls and musical entertainment it should make for a lively afternoon of fun and sport.
The first race is at 12.45pm and as it marks the beginning of the serious jumps season the afternoon may push forward some promising horses for the months to come.
Top trainers Paul Nicholls, Nicky Henderson and Venetia Williams have already declared some of their younger horses and the card looks to be very interesting.
